This awesome geek dad took a video of his child running down the sidewalk and added some coins, a few turtle shells and fireballs, completely transforming an everyday scene and making you think about how awesome it would be if we still had the imaginations we once did as kids.

I wonder how the child reacted when he saw the modified video?

Moms shouldn’t feel too picked on; last June, Fallon had a segment on his show called the “Evolution of Dad Dancing” in honor of Father’s Day:
Every year since 2007, DJ Earworm has created a mashup of the top pop songs in a series called “The United State of Pop”. He weaves the lyrics to create an entirely new song, and 2012’s hits became “Shine Brighter”.
